My Sunflower Seeds And Stubby Okras

PLUCKING MOMENTS....  Andy is back again, this time not to plant but to harvest. LOL... The sunflowers that he planted two months ago have reached their peak.  It is time to un-seed them and see if he could replant them again using the seeds.  Not sure it could work... the seeds are still drying under the sun during the day.
The sunflower turns into this.... 
And I didn't know they were actually sunflower seeds until we plucked them open... 
Hope these can be replanted.... 


As for my own two pots of previous fat okras, they are slow in harvesting and so far, I have eaten only six of them.  Initially I did not know what type of species they were until this friend pointed out to me in Facebook, mentioning that.. if there are eight corners, then the okra is Arab species and if five corners, it is Taiwanese.  Thanks to her, now I know....  LOL... Interesting, right?  
Still Sprouting high.... 
So now I know...
Mine are Arab ones, short and stubby and yet crunchy!
I am going to plant more pots of these...
They can either be steamed or stir fry with sambal!

  1. Oh!! I didn't know got Arab ones. I prefer Ang Moh sized to eat.

    I must try planting Sunflowers as the blooming flowers always looked happy and big.

  2. I got some sunflower seeds from my church early this year. Try to grow them but not successful. Maybe will try again since I have some more seeds.

    Arabic okra is so cute. Haha

  3. I am sure his seeds will re-grow! All you really need to do is dump them on the ground like our neighbor did, and they will grow!

  4. Did you all eat some of the sunflower seeds? Like kuaci. Your okra is so cute. Didn't know about the different types of okras.

    1. Of course they can be eaten. I have eaten sunflower seeds direct from the pods before.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
